BTYS Business Bootcamp
BT’s 8th Business Bootcamp Programme for students
A number of the exhibiting intermediate and senior students from the 2017 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition were invited to take part in a BT Young Scientist Business Bootcamp in March 2017 where they experienced the world of technology commercialisation and entrepreneurship.
We have created this programme to encourage further innovation by our young scientists and provide them with commercialisation skills to carry forward into their careers and lives. The bootcamp is held at University College Dublin (UCD).
The Bootcamp experience has been life changing. I feel it has really opened up doors for me in regards to career options, developing my project and communicating better with people. I have met and heard from some amazing and inspiring people and I feel I have become more creative and innovative in the way I think.
Expanding Business Leadership
As an extension of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition, the BT Young Scientist Business Bootcamp has enabled BT to take a national leadership role in economic development. BT is collaborating with key private and public sector organisations to create an opportunity to mentor the next generation of Irish innovators and entrepreneurs.
Igniting Entrepreneurial Spirit
We at BT believe that the BT Young Scientist Business Bootcamp helps to bridge the gap between the worlds of education and business and mentor the next generation of young innovators and entrepreneurs.
